The Nuggets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Nets are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 home games and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Nuggets last 7 overall. The under is 5-2 in Nets last 7 games playing on 0 days rest. The Nuggets are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Brooklyn and 5-16 ATS in the last 21 meetings.

The Denver Nuggets have been hit or miss this season, so I can understand the hesitation with this line, but being the underdog here to the shorthanded Nets is weird. The Brooklyn Nets are on the end of a back to back and won't have Durant or Kyrie yet again. The Nets are giving big minutes to bench players at best, and Harden seems to be getting more and more frustrated. The Nuggets being an underdog here is questionable at best. I'll gladly side with the Nuggets here.
